It is the most common technique used to purify water during the rainy season. Some of the water purifiers are also based on electronic boiling. Boiling water can destroy bacteria & viruses but it fails to remove dissolved impurities like pesticides, rust and harmful salts. The logic is simple - if you boil water containing dissolved sugar/salt, the water will remain sweet/salty only. Thus boiling does not remove dissolved impurities from boiled water which can still affect our health.
Conventional UV Based Water Purifier
Most conventional electric water purifiers work on Ultra Violet (UV) purification
where water is subjected to UV rays
to kill bacteria and viruses. When used as a standalone system, they fail to remove
dissolved impurities like:
- Heavy Metals
- Harmful Chemicals
RO Water Purifier
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a new technology being used for past few years to purify
- Removes dissolved impurities along with bacteria and viruses
from drinking water.
- However removes essential natural minerals as well and may
make water bitter and aggressive.
- Within 6 to 8 months of usage, the pores of RO Membrane tend to get enlarged, allowing bacteria and virus to easily pass through, making purified water infected and unfit to drink.
